Nicola and Pete, plus daughters Lola, now 9, and Nell, now 7, spent last summer exploring Britain in a carbon-light manner. Now we're home but the travel bug is still there. Join us for occasional sightseeing, plus tips onhow to shrink your carbon footprint. This post is from Nicola
At last here's a flight my family can take. Not only is it carbon zero, you also get to pick your seat - I'm sure Pete will want to be close to Time Team's Tony Robinson. Best of all it's a virtual trip, so no risk of irritating neighbours or turbulence terrors. This plane ride is captained by Friends of the Earth in a bid to get Government to include aviation emissions in their upcoming - and rather delayed - Climate Change Bill. Head for it now...
There's also three in-flight movies to enjoy at YouTube, find the Westminster jet crasher; the Cockney Queen and the naked flight. Aside from all those campaigners who fly around the world to the climate COPs (though they needn't December 2008 as the meeting is in Poland) how often do you get to book a flight with celebs - think Razorlight's Johnny Borrell, Radiohead's Thom Yorke - to help Government do the right thing?
This is carbon offsetting at its best.
